Stalemates and shocks!
Copa Del Rey Semi-Final Leg 1
Bilbao beat Granada 1-0, and Real Sociedad beat Mirandes 2-1 in the first legs as predicted. The away teams do have a chance in the 2nd legs and a 1 goal deficit is no proof of qualification to the final. All to play for still.
Coppa Italia Semi-Final Leg 1
Napoli beat Inter 0-1, and Juventus drew with Milan 1-1 as both games were relatively close encounters. Juventus were saved thanks to a Ronaldo penalty in the 91st minute and so go into the 2nd leg with hope. All to play for in these fixtures as well but Napoli away and Juventus away are tough games in tough stadiums.
Coupe De France Quarter-Final
Rennes beat Belfort 0-3, PSG beat Dijon 1-6, Lyon beat Marseille 1-0, and St.Etienne beat Epinal 1-2. Most of the usual teams winning with Lyon beating Marseille being the only close encounter. Next up is the semis where anything can happen although PSG would remain the favourites.
